&uot;I was on the porch with my daughter and her husband,&uot; said Frankie Brown, whose house was in front of the crime scene. &uot;He screamed don’t shoot and I heard three or four shots, pow, pow, pow. He fell down on the ground.&uot;

Brown said Lollis was dead at the scene.

Brown was one of about 150 people gathered at the crime scene after 10 p.m. Most of the people at the scene said they knew Lollis and were from the neighborhood. CPSO officers, State Police and representatives from the DA’s office had the scene blocked off well past 10 p.m.

Sheriff Randy Maxwell said he did not know the number of shots fired, but that the victim was carrying a gun and had a criminal record. Maxwell did not confirm the name of the victim or name the deputy.

&uot;It’s an absolute tragedy anytime anything like this happens,&uot; Maxwell said. &uot;For the officer and his family and for the victim and his family.&uot;

Maxwell said the CPSO would not be involved in the investigation.
